      Its literally been 2 decades i have seen them. Thanks to my neighborhood, my kid can see them now. These rare, thought extinct bugs popularly called as Red Buchis by kids - Real name: Velvet Mites - Aarudra Purugu in Telugu.

      @kedar, in the concrete jungle all we can fnd is cockroaches :) - i live in the outskirts of the city.
      @Sanjay, they make sudden appearance after the rains start and the weather cools down. usually in places where there is grass and the soil is not sticky kind of.

      Yes last April! Almost 7 hours in the scorching sun! I still regret for not wearing full sleeves. Most of the tan has gone but there is still a noticeable amount of it left.
